Callisto - Take Two by amberj8 Callisto - Take Two by amberj8
10 years ago, I drew this same image in graphite when I was just starting to figure out how to draw and shade and everything. When I heard Hudson Leick would be attending OzComicCon, I immediately started redrawing it in charcoal. I took it to the Con and had Hudson autograph it in person, which was simply an AMAZING experience. In those 10 years I can see how I've improved - my attention to detail is far greater, my understanding of shading has come a long way, and I'm really proud of how it turned out. This is the link to my first effort: [link]

Callisto will always be my favorite psycho blonde. :)

The improvement is amazing. I checked out the original, which was very well done, but the changes that you have made make such a huge difference. The lightness that you have in the hair is amazing and the detailing in the clothing is spot on. It looks like a photograph. Beautiful work!

Thanks so much. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out...it's always fun to work on a drawing that you're passionate about, and I think it tends to show in the finished work. Glad you like it, too.

It took me about 5 minutes to noticed that it's NOT a photo... Incredibly amazing....!
